    Wow! What a wonderful year! I couldn’t believe how any of those recipes I actually made! Thanks Mary, for a year full of good eats!

    How beautiful your wrap up is! I love the review posts because there is always something new to see or dream of tasting, and everyone’s posts deserve a second look~your photos especially! I love the “quilt” you wove with your photo collage, you should print it out and hang it in your kitchen!

    That cracked me up…”Season’s Eatings” – that could be my new mantra! I’ve tried many of these and will use the “marinated shrimp” (again) for New Years! CHEERS! franki

    Mary, these all look just as enticing now as they did when I first saw them! Going to pin a few of them that I want to make in January! Cheers to a happy and healthy New Year!

    Mary, your year of cooking and baking and beautiful tables and picnics and garden shed delights has fed my soul beyond compare. I marvel at how you continue to do all of these things and at the the same time take incredible photos of it all to share with us who visit each day. Thanks for yet another wonderful year sailing along with you. Happy New Year!

    Just when I thought I was going to be good and start my New Year’s diet – I come across your blog – UGH!
    My rear and my waistline thank you – my belt might be another story.
    Thanks for the inspiration!
